This was a very charming, warm and inviting place for a Holiday gathering of friends. The wait for a table was totally worth it. It was decorated so beautifully for the Holiday and I adored the ambiance. Our waitress was wonderful, prompt and very kind. She was also knowledgeable about the menu! I had the prime rib sandwich and it... More

My daughter and son-in-law took me to dinner for my birthday. My hamburger was great but the hit of the dinner was "what is it?", the restaurant's signature dish. Al Mike's is fun with great staff. One of Charlotte's mainstay eating locations. I highly recommend this restaurant.

After reading the reviews on Alexander Michael's, I thought my husband, daughter and I would check it out for lunch while visiting Charlotte. Excellent choice! I had the Reuben, my husband had the Turkey Club, and our daughter had the Tuna Melt. All of us had the Pasta Salad as a side. Everything was delicious, and my daughter and I... More

My husband and I stumbled upon Alexander Michael's looking for something different in Charlotte before we started our Aruban vacation. WOW, were we knocked off our feet! We both tried the Reuben and it was absolutely fantastic. I ordered mine without the Dijon mustard (I'm much more traditional about my Reuben's) but my husband liked his with it. I had... More

Loved the food. Ordered the fried pickles for appetizer and they were delicious. The crab soup is fabulous. Reuben sandwich devine. Beef stroganoff (has a little garlic) was also very good. Carrot cake is a must and best I have ever had and big enough to split! Service was excellent! Prices very reasonable! Wish I didn't live 100 miles away!... More

Stopped by on Saturday after a matinee at Booths Playhouse and we weren't disappointed again. Of course they make the best fried pickles and that's why we keep going back. But this time we tried the "What it is" and "Penne Athena". Both were excellent choices. And tho chase that down was the pumpkin cheese cake and a carrot cake.... More

The whole experience makes you feel like you're home, the food taste is not 'industrialized' it feels pretty home made.

We had a party of 9 including an infant. They had pulled tables together to accommodate us. The staff were so friendly and great service. The food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
